Among the independent organizations are:

  • Eclaireurs communautaires du Congo
  • Eclaireurs d'Afrique
  • Eclaireurs du Congo
  • Eclaireurs Louzolo Amour

There is no national organization that is yet recognized by the World Organization of the Scout Movement.

History

Scouting was founded in French Equatorial Africa in 1941, but was banned during the long Marxist period. Guiding was introduced to the Republic of the Congo in 1927, and became a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 1957, and again in 1996 after the renewal of the organization.

The Eclaireurs Neutres du Congo were founded by the Eclaireurs Neutres de France, a French non-aligned Scouting organization, in 2004.[3]

Motto

The Scout Motto is Sois Prêt (Be Prepared) or Toujours Prêt (Always Prepared) in French, depending on the organization.
